T Players Tease Fredthebear
Compiled by fredthebear

This collection had to be thinned out. The "double t players" Staunton, Steinitz, Zukertort and Tartakower are in another collection. Tal has his own collection; his games will be removed. Tarrasch, Teichmann, Traxler, Torre, Trompowsky, Taimanov, Timman, Topalov, etc. still remain.

Thank you, Ulhumbrus! For a solid chess lesson from Capablanca, read Ulhumbrus blogger notes to the 1919 game between Alexander and Thomas.

Here's a link to games by Tarrasch playing the Tarrasch Defense!

* Here's some short games by Topalov:
Game Collection: Topalov Miniatures: Crushing 2700+ Rated Opposit Otherwise, Topalov's games have been removed to his own collection to make more room in this collection.

poem by B.H. Wood, entitled ‘The Drowser':

Ah, reverie! Ten thousand heads I see
Bent over chess-boards, an infinity
Of minds engaged in battle, fiendishly,
Keenly, or calmly, as the case may be:
World-wide, the neophyte, the veteran,
The studious problemist, the fairy fan ...
"What's that? – I'm nearly sending you to sleep? Sorry! – but this position's rather deep."

Source: Chess Amateur, September 1929, page 268.

The Ass and the Little Dog

One's native talent from its course
Cannot be turned aside by force;
But poorly apes the country clown
The polished manners of the town.
Their Maker chooses but a few
With power of pleasing to imbue;
Where wisely leave it we, the mass,
Unlike a certain fabled ass,
That thought to gain his master's blessing
By jumping on him and caressing.
"What!" said the donkey in his heart;
"Ought it to be that puppy's part
To lead his useless life
In full companionship
With master and his wife,
While I must bear the whip?
What does the cur a kiss to draw?
Forsooth, he only gives his paw!
If that is all there needs to please,
I'll do the thing myself, with ease."
Possessed with this bright notion, –
His master sitting on his chair,
At leisure in the open air, –
He ambled up, with awkward motion,
And put his talents to the proof;
Upraised his bruised and battered hoof,
And, with an amiable mien,
His master patted on the chin,
The action gracing with a word –
The fondest bray that ever was heard!
O, such caressing was there ever?
Or melody with such a quaver?
"Ho! Martin! here! a club, a club bring!"
Out cried the master, sore offended.
So Martin gave the ass a drubbing, –
And so the comedy was ended.
